High Performance Jatropha (Edible & Non-Edible) thrives on degraded soils.
With the help of High Performance Jatropha plantations, previously unproductive soils not only become the object of sustainable value creation, but also the basis for effective measures against climate change.
Fallow land is converted into cultivated land and thus acquires the ability to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere on a large scale and store it in biomass and soil in the long term.
The extensive sequestration work carried out here – commonly known as “carbon farming” or “carbon capture” is certifiable through the first-time use of previously unproductive soils and thus tradable as part of value creation.
High Performance Jatropha is thus the basis for what is currently the only form of removing CO2 from the atmosphere that is profitable.
Moreover, the plantations are among the few climate projects with actual negative emissions. Currently, only about 4% of global climate compensation projects remove CO2 from the atmosphere.
